Miss Paige at Champs

All good things must come to an end.  Christmas day, vacation, my cup of medicine  Starbucks. And swim team. 

Last Saturday was Spirit Day. After a final practice and breakfast party, the kiddos had their hair 'did.' (Some by their own clueless moms). 

Nails were painted in team colors. Posters were made. Dolphin (mascot) tattoos were applied. Then it was off to home to shop/pack for camping rest up for the 'big day.'
We were greeted (at 6 a.m.) the next morning by a little gift from the team dolphin fairy. Armed with towels, food, and chairs, etc., we made the 40 minute trip to the meet. Whew! We made it in plenty of time for the 7:20 a.m. warm-up in chilly San Mateo.
We were so proud of our girl. She is still very much at a beginner level, but has made so much progress, receiving at least one personal best at each meet. She showed some nice confidence at Champs and beat her own record in breast stroke.

We were excited to capture her name on the big scoreboard a few times. Until next year...
